Description

The story talks about the disappearing rain forests of Irian Jaya, a France-size province in eastern Indonesia. Freeport-McMoRan, a New Orleans-based multinational that owns and operates the mines through an Indonesian subsidiary, is mining the largest peak (13,500 feet) in the Jayawijaya Mountain range. It is the largest gold mine in the world. The story looks at the effects of this corporate colonization on the stone-age indigenous people.
